Balance is About Anticipation and Patience

Hisun loaned me the book The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein and at first I thought it was a cute concept - a book written by a dog. But it offered so much more. The story explores finding balance which is ultimately the interplay of anticipation and patience. As the protagonist learns about racing cars - "the car foes where the eyes go" - a powerful metaphor for setting intentions and following through as you ride the waves of anticipation with patience.
